Rivian trucks is taking social distancing seriously
Rivian trucks are being tested, right now, all the time, even if the technicians aren’t on location to do so. Right now, software engineers are able to connect with each other away from the testing facility. One of the engineers can control diagnostic settings and stream real-time data to his teammates. He’s able to adjust the diagnostic settings and stream the real-time data as well.

“We build our vehicles to withstand the shocks and stresses of any adventure, and our organization is no different. In the midst of adjusting to the pandemic, our vehicle development continues making progress.” – – Rivian
The image above shows a test vehicle being put through extensive suspension and platform stress testing. All of the data is being sent to engineers who are at home. Sure, it’s not as good as being there, but the data is important and allows engineers to gather information remotely.
By giving the public and media excellent access to the behind-the-scenes blogs and images like this, Rivian is setting an example of top notch communications skills. Not only that, they have something free for the family! By clicking (here) you can get your very own free Rivian coloring book.
